It’s easy to dismiss Edvard Grieg because of the familiarity of the Peer Gynt Suite and the Piano Concerto in A minor, but to listen to just those works is only scratching the surface of a diverse repertoire. Grieg’s works drew international attention to Norway and, for a while, the composer succeeded Mendelssohn as Britain’s most popular living composer. This set is an immersive experience, as we delve into the lush green landscapes of Grieg’s homeland.

The collection opens with In Autumn, an arrangement of a traditional Reapers’ Song, followed by his celebrated Piano concerto in A minor Op.16, which Franz Liszt enjoyed playing. Other admirers of his music included close friend Antonín Dvořák, Johannes Brahms and Tchaikovsky, who wrote in 1888: ‘In [Grieg’s] music there prevails a fascinating melancholy which seems to reflect in itself all the beauty of Norwegian scenery, now grandiose and sublimein its vast expanse…’. However, not everyone was a fan and Debussy dismissed his music as ‘pink sweets filled with snow’. Despite the French composer’s criticism, Grieg’s more impressionist works such as Klokkeklang (Bell-ringing), published in 1891, where tonal ambiguities arise from shifting fifths and liberal use of the pedal, sound remarkably similar to Debussy’s works published in the years that followed.

What makes Grieg’s music special is his connection to nature and the wilderness: the rolling hills, lofty mountain peaks, the thick dark forests which hide the giants, faeries and elves of folk-lore. Along with the well-known works, this release also sheds light on the hidden gems in Grieg’s repertoire including his vocal works, which are seldom performed or recorded due to their vocal complexity and the unfamiliarity of the language. The songs are often settings of folk stories, such as Den Bergtekne (‘The Mountain Thrall’). The old Norse poem is arranged for baritone voice with instrumental accompaniment and tells the story of a young man lost deep in the forest who is bewitched by the Elvin-King’s daughter. His Lyric Pieces for solo piano have also been sorely overlooked. In Book X Op.71, ‘Skogstillhet’ (Peace in the Woods) is a standout piece. It recalls the mystery and tranquillity of a forest, from the sunlight filtering through the trees with its soft opening chords to the rolling bass in the middle section evoking the secrets hidden in its darkest depths.

For Grieg, his surroundings were a source of inspiration and he recognised the natural landscape as a fundamental and irreplaceable part of his homeland. In today’s rapidly developing world, where expansion is often prioritised over preservation, Grieg’s music has a pressing relevance.

Brilliant Classics presents a unique 25 CD collection of the near complete works of Norway’s most famous composer, Edvard Grieg.
Edvard Grieg was at the forefront of a flourishing of creativity that took place in Scandinavian culture in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, alongside his contemporaries, Nielsen and Sibelius. His imagination was particularly fired by the folk music and stories of his native Norway. His catchy tunes, lively rhythms and haunting musical evocations of the majestic Norwegian landscapes have made Grieg immensely popular with a wide audience.
Included are the complete orchestral works: the immortal Peer Gynt, Holberg Suite, the ever popular Piano concerto and many more inspired orchestral miniatures.
The Chamber music includes the Cello Sonata, de Violin Sonatas and the two String Quartets.
The piano music is performed by Håkon Austbø, the recipient of the 2003 Grieg Award. This edition contains 7 CDs of his idiomatic performances. Another 7 feature Grieg’s orchestral, choral and chamber works. Performers include the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields and the Raphael Quartet. Jorge Bolet is the soloist in the famous piano concerto.
The final third of this Edition is dedicated to Grieg’s 170 beautiful songs which at the time were inspired and performed by his wife Nina. Grieg also had ample opportunity to incorporate his beloved folk music in these charming and attractive songs.
Performers include the Malmö Symphony Orchestra, Royal Scottish Orchestra, conductor Bjarte Engeset, pianist Havard Gimse, the Moscow Trio and soprano Marianna Hirsti.
